Abstract

ICU management of the multiorgan failure patient is getting increasingly complex due to the availability of the advanced organ support system. A systematic approach to multiple critical-care-related issues encountered by these patients should be initiated by the ICU team to minimize chances of hospital-acquired complications or infections and maximize chances of recovery. For an experienced intensivist, the comprehensive ICU care begins before he/she enters the ICU. Having a plan ready for each patient and modulating it with the current condition drives confidence in both the staff and the patient.
